Summary

A bison mandible containing teeth from the Trinomial 41CR30 site in West Texas was

submitted for analysis of calculus and tooth impacta (Table 1) to identify the environment in

which this bison had been grazing. The site is a late prehistoric bison kill site located in the

Monahans Sand Dunes, Crane County, TX. This area is currently classified as a transitional

zone between the Southern High Plains and the Chihuahuan Biotic Provenience. Phytolith

analysis should provide some information as to the general environment and climate this bison

experienced.
